Lighting plays an important part in defining the character of a room, or even an entire building. Read More...
When it is important for a particular room to create a certain impression, the use of a chandelier or hanging pendant light can certainly help.
Apart from the aesthetic factor, these lights can also help to fill more practical needs, by bringing light closer to you without increasing its intensity.
That can be useful, for example, in a dining room setting, where people need enough light to see what they are doing, but where soft light improves the ambience.
Softer light creates a cosy atmosphere with more intimacy, helping to stimulate conversation and the desire to linger at the table. Strong light, on the other hand, makes people feel quite the opposite.
Restaurants use bright light when they want to increase table turn over. When they want to encourage people to stay, they use softer light, or almost no light at all.
The difference between chandeliers and pendants is that chandeliers employ multiple branches of small lights, while pendants are usually a single large light.
This means, of course, that pendants are more focused light, while chandeliers tend to spread or scatter light more.
When a chandelier is used in a lobby, ballroom, or large hall, it will normally be set to have bright light.
The chandeliers and pendants designed by Christopher Wray come in a great diversity of styles. With looks ranging from antique to futuristic, and many different options for how they can be implemented, it is assured that you will find something to suit the space you intend to use the lighting within.
